submitted changes that are not mentioned below wants to chime in, please
feel free.  Also, apologies if I didn't attribute your change to you.

The setup.exe program will figure out what needs to be updated on your
system and will install newer packages automatically.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
